Did anyone ever attribute much of a social conscience to Mudhoney back in the day when they were "The Guys Who Built Grunge"? All these years later, their outrage at the state of the world around them has finally reared its head on their seventh studio album, Under a Billion Suns. Don't worry, Mudhoney have not gotten goopy or sensitive, they've just found new things to snarl about that have a greater degree of political significance - "Hard-On for War" is a rude but emphatic number in which you learn why "horny old men are always eager for wa.
Mudhoney was formed in 1988 by vocalist/guitarist Mark Arm and guitarist Steve Turner. The band signed with the independent label Sub Pop and released the Superfuzz Bigmuff EP in 1988 and their debut album Mudhoney in 1989.

Before being dropped, Mudhoney released two more albums for the label. Subsequently, the band signed again with Sub Pop in 2000 issuing Since We've Become Translucent in 2002.

The seventh studio album by the grunge mainstays, Under a Billion Suns was recorded over just three weekends, each with a different producer. According to vocalist Mark Arm, this made the new set sonically more diverse and interesting. It features a more commercial sound and more edgy, political lyrics. Although, the band maintains this was meant to be more satirical than anything else. It also features heavy usage of trumpets and saxophones alongside traditional rock instruments.

Under a Billion Suns is the seventh studio album by Mudhoney, released in the United States in March 2006 The album was a further departure from Mudhoney's original grunge sound, and a continuation of the more commercial sound that began with their previous album. Of note is the unusual amount of saxophones and trumpets featured on the album. A few of the songs also feature female backing vocals. Before the album was released co-founder of Sub Pop records Jonathan Poneman said that the album is more political than typical Mudhoney albums, while vocalist Mark Arm said "That may be a little exaggerated. There are four songs where those things are touched on. It's more kind of mocking than the stark, black or white approach.
Under a Billion Suns finds the aging rockers not sounding too aged, with hard, fuzzy, intentionally sloppy rock Ã¡ la the Stooges throughout. The album as a whole actually seems more â?grunge' than some of the stuff I have found from their albums of the â?grunge era,' which itself seemed less sludgy and more punk, and some tracks that were acoustic and twangy. Another way that Mudhoney try to keep things fresh is through a recording technique that brought them success on their last album: instead of one giant studio session in which everything gets laid down, they went in spurts, and with different producers. In early June last year they met with Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Modest Mouse) and recorded four tracks, then mid-June met with Johnny Sangster (the Posies) and laid down three more. Then early July they put the last four tracks to tape with Tucker Martine.
